Interested Scholars

The following scholars are interested in this topic:

My interests are in coastal disasters and mitigation, with an emphasis on methods to evaluate the risks of tropical cyclones and storm surge. I am currently working on developing an integrated social and physical vulnerability index for a better risk assessment and more targeted approach for planning and preparing a coastal community prior to a hurricane.

I am the Associate Director at ‘Doers’- a humanitarian organization working towards resilience and sustainability in the Himalayan region of India. I have 16 years of field-based experience in interrelated domains of disaster risk reduction, humanitarian response and climate change adaptation in India. I have contributed to the Hazard, Vulnerability & Risk Analysis (HVRA) of Himachal Pradesh state as well as Shimla city. Currently, I am leading an ambitious project to build ‘Data Ecosystem for Effective Planning and Response during Emergencies & Disasters (DEEPRED)’ at Doers. My research interests include the utilization of data for effective risk communication and building better decision support systems for disaster risk management.
